Goodreads asked John Elvin:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

John Elvin I wish I could say charge single-mindedly and relentlessly ahead into the thick of battle. But I feel some guilt in doing so, I don't want to misguide. So, the yin to that yang is: Have a Plan B. I wish everyone as much serenity as they can find in life; it is not to be found in frustration and suffering, which is the primary offering of today's market for creative writing. But, do what you must, and I wish you the best of consequences.
